Default Own/have access to a '94-'96 commercial glass car?

Researching at moment. Seems this windshield is an additional 1" taller and a different manufacturer than other commercial windshields. Please check your corner glass markings and take a center measurement of exposed glass from rubber to rubber. Thanks in advance.

Let me know if you need to contact Guardian Glass directly... they make those in Upper Sandusky, Ohio (about 18 miles from my house)

I know you are looking for measurments, but what is the coachbuilder and chassis make? S&S Buicks appear different than S&S Cadillac (Victoria & Masterpiece). Superior Cadillac Sovereign in this era also used commercial glass, but is also appeares different than the S&S Cadillacs.
I have no numbers to confirm this, but by close visual inspection they appear to be different.

Cadillac John. Story behind what coach builder has morphed into an unexpected turn, one that I now have the answer too, but would like more data before revealing.

Here are pics I shot today of the windsheild markings on the funeral homes 1993 Superior Crown Sovergin and on Elmo the 1994 S&S Cadillac Victoria limo we have. The first photo is on the FH's hearse and the second is of Elmo's data. Elmo's windsheild was replaced with a new one bought from Accubuilt just after it was bought in bout 2008. Looks like to me they are both the same if you go by the AS-1 GG-M55 number.

so what does the tag say? other then not all Guardian glass is made in the USA. (GM subsidiary)

the numbers are the apically law that the glass is covered by and meets the specks of and the date of manufacture. not one of them is the manufactures or the NAGS number for this glass. every glass meeting the same specks will have the same set of numbers on them. the only one of intrest is the date of manufacture. one of these glasses was made in 95 one in 92 and the other in 02

Both peices of glass, the one I posted from our FH's 93 and the one Atti posted both have the 940980 number. The hearse glass has 93 on it so we know it hasn't been changed and Atti's has 95. The limo has a 767815 number and has 02 on it and as we know it has been replaced. The Superior's windsheild is raked back further than the S&S limo as well.

My bad on my previous post. I thought for sure the Superior and S&S glass were different, although I was going by visual inspection by photos. It must be the rake of the A pillars and Chrome surround on the S&S that gives it a much different appearance.
